National Leader of the Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL), Princewill Richard, has lambasted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the recent statement issued on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria condemning the killing of 58 unarmed Palestinian demonstrators in Gaza by Israeli Military. The Nigerian Government had warned that the Israeli government should respect human rights and international laws.
But the BNYL Leader noted that the Federal government of Nigeria lacked the qualifications and moral right to condemn any killings outside Nigeria being a partaker in the crime against humanity.
“It’s surprising that Nigeria could come out bold to speak against Israeli-Palestinian crises, let alone taking side with Palestine. Nigeria government lacks the qualifications and moral rights to condemn the Israeli government or any government of the world that uses force on demonstrators because this same government is guilty of the same offence.
“We urge the Israeli government not to take seriously the position of the government of Nigeria.
“Although, we don’t support the killing of unarmed civilians but in this case, Nigeria should not speak,” Richard added.
The BNYL Leader also welcomed the relocation of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
